Chapter 582: Where’s Your Confidence, Shi Tianyi?
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The power of the stars was immense and while Shi Tianyi was able to cultivate the Xian Heaven Holy Stellar Light, he only able to use a small portion of their power.
However, even that tiny portion of power was devastating to cultivators under the Immortal Soul stage.
Even the disciples of the Celestial Sect of Wonders sat up straight and looked intensely at the battle.
Wang Lin’s cold gaze flashed. Now that he cultivated the Four Appearances Heaven Cleaving Script and formed his nascent soul, he was no longer afraid of Shi Tianyi’s attack. However, if they were to go back to the fight in the Void Battleground, no one knew what would happen if Shi Tianyi used that move.
Xiao Yan muttered to himself, “This is as powerful as the Heaven Fire Lotus formed from the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire and the Grand Sun Primordial Flame…”
His Heaven Fire Lotus was formed from the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire and the Grand Sun Primordial Flame and the most powerful combination of this Twin Fire Lotus.
Of course, after he formed his nascent soul, his mastery would increase. Regardless whether it’s the Heaven Fire Lotus or the power of a single primordial fire, it would surely increase greatly in potential.
While Zhu Yi said nothing, his expression was serious.
As an onlooker, he could clearly feel the power of Shi Tianyi’s attack. At this moment, he was much clearer about that than Shi Tianhao, who was directly facing the brunt of the attack.
However, Shi Tianhao did not show fear. He looked calmly at the light pillar rushing towards him at lightning speed.
The space behind him opened him ferociously and he deployed his Great Chaos Furnace attack!
In the furnace, shapeless and formless winds howled and screeched as every single layer of the chaotic space within it trembled.
Prince Anliang, Shi Zongyue, looked at the scene and was shocked as he said, “That’s… That’s the Void Storm, one of the Four Grand Primordial Winds! Wait, wait, that’s not the real Void Storm. However, it has the same terrifying power.”
The shape of a giant beast appeared in the furnace at this time. It looked like a sac and was red like fire. It had four wings and six legs and no facial feature at all.
It was Hundun, another one of the Four Immemorial Evil Beasts!
Shi Tianhao roared as the powers of the Great Chaos Furnace were superimposed on his body. The powers rushed straight into the heavens and confronted the golden light pillar directly.
From the very start, Shi Tianhao had no intention of dodging the attack.
As he lashed out with a fist, space shattered instantly. The Evil Beast, Hundun, turned into a tempest as it charged towards the golden light pillar.
The brilliant golden light flashed non-stop and no one dared to open their eyes. They could only sense a brilliant heat.
A few people could see that Shi Tianhao stood brazenly in mid-air as the power of the Hundun attacked the Xian Heaven Holy Stellar Light.
However, the power of the stars was still a lot. Despite only borrowing on a bit, Shi Tianyi was able to command an almost limitless amount of power. Under its bombardment, Shi Tianhao could only retreat.
If not for Shi Tianhao’s powerful and sturdy physical body, the radiance of the stars would have incinerated his body.
“Eh!” Shi Tianhao’s right hand turned into a fist as he faced the bombardment of the stars up-front. His left hand was outstretched and with the support of the help from the Tao Tie within the first Great Chaos Furnace, he was able to grab onto the light pillar.
The powerful Tao Tie turned into a dark land as it gobbled up the Shi Tianyi’s stellar powers.
Shi Tianyi’s eyebrows arched tightly. Then, he saw Shi Tianhao exhaling mightily as resounding bellows could be heard from the Great Chaos Furnace behind him. It was as if they had gone back to the earliest days of Creation.
With the help of the powers of the two beasts, the golden light pillar was shattered.
Immediately, the Dragon Battle Arena was shrouded in blinding gold light. Looking at the Dragon Battle Arena from the Heavenly Dragon Ancient Land, one could only see golden light spewing forth.
On-lookers were all speechless at this scene as a million thoughts crossed their hearts.
The two combatants before them truly lived up to their fame.
The older Shi was powerful enough to master the Great Void Sect’s Great Void Nine Heavenly Spell. Regardless whether it’s the Zhong Heaven Gate or the Xian Heaven Holy Stellar Light, their powers were both astounding. Any single of them could match a Nascent Soul stage cultivator.
However, the younger Shi was much more fierce. He was actually able to resist the Xian Heaven Holy Stellar Light.
Furthermore, he was still in his late Aurous Core stage while Shi Tianyi was in his early Nascent Soul stage. That was even more shocking.
Shi Chongyun looked expressionlessly at the scene before him. The Imperial Household of Great Qin too once considered adopting Shi Tianyi. How could he not know?
Shi Zongyue and the Vivant Joy Holy man looked at each other and shook their heads. “Such a pity, neither the senior Shi nor the junior Shi can be used by the Great Qin. Pity, pity.”
In the golden light, Shi Tianhao suddenly stood upright. Wounds appeared on his body as he was bombarded by the light of the stars. No matter how strong his physical body was, he could not escape unscathed. However, his physical aura reached a new peak. As he bellowed under his breath, a golden circle light appeared near his head.
In the golden circle of light, a giant beast floated.
Some people recognized it as they gasped, “Kun Peng?”
The Kun Peng hovered in the space non-stop. When it sank, it looked like a fish. Its body was black and enormous. It was at least a few thousand kilometers in length. No one really knew.
When it floated, its body turned into a bird. Its body was filled with green feather and it had a golden beak. Its head was covered with white feathers. Its two wings were out-stretched and stretch for thousands of kilometers.
While the light above Shi Tianhao’s head wasn’t big, everyone could comprehend the size of the Kun Peng due to the distortion in space.
Shi Tianhao used the blood of the Four Immemorial Evil Beasts to forge his Great Chaos Furnace. He himself was strengthened by the blood of Kun Peng and hence, he too absorbed its powers.
He shrugged his shoulder vigorously and like how the Kun Peng rose from the sea and turned into a sea, green wings grew on his shoulders as he flew straight up to the nine heavens.
The restrictions Shi Tianyi’s Zhong Heavens Gate placed on Shi Tianhao were lifted immediately. Shi Tianhao charged towards Shi Tianyi.
With his speed, Shi Tianyi couldn’t evade it even with his Heaven-Ascending Spell.
Shi Tianyi’s right eye shone with light as numerous clouds appeared and conjured an illusion. He once again avoided calamity.
When he activated the Zhong Heaven Gate and the Xian Heaven Holy Stellar Light, he pushed his mana to its peak once again. This drained him. He had no choice but to dodge Shi Tianhao’s attack while he recharged.
Shi Tianhao said quietly, “Before the battle, weren’t you brimming with confidence? Why are you acting like a turtle now? Where’s your confidence? Your pride?”
In the void, Shi Tianyi stood with his hands behind his back. No one knew if that was the real him or just an illusion. He looked calmly at Shi Tianhao and said, “The power of polycoria is my ability and I use it. What’s wrong with that? Instead, aren’t you the one who wants to challenge me? I’m waiting for you to beat my ultimate move.”
Shi Tianhao’s two Great Chaos Furnaces behind him roared as the shadow of the Kun Peng above his head floated. He said, “With a Nascent Soul stage mastery, you were blinded in one eye by my Third Senior. I thought that your mastery of the Great Void Sect’s spells would have improved. Now, I realized that all you could do in response to my attacks is to defend yourself. You should find a hole to hide in.”
His words were like knives For members of the Great Void Sect watching the fight, particularly those who were not in the Immortal Soul stage like Kuang Heng, the Xuan Lin Holy Man and the Elegant Clouds Holy Woman, their faces burned with rage.
Shi Tianhao then continued, “Normally, I will be patient to slowly fight it out with you. However, doing that won’t help me open the Dragon Rock Gate, right? That’s just wasting time.”
“That’s indeed a problem,” agreed Shi Tianyi. “So, here I come.”
As he said that, Shi Tianyi, who was hovering in mid-air, slammed his palms together and summoned a spell. Light burst forth from around him.
In the next instant, one could hear a dragon roar from within the light. From the light, a white light giant dragon rushed out as it charged towards Shi Tianhao.
Shi Tianhao had to respond. However, he was caught in the illusion cast by Shi Tianyi’s right eye. Who knew if the attack was real or fake?
He did not avoid it. Instead, he counterattacked the white light giant dragon. The Tao Tie in the Great Chaos Furnance behind him morphed into a canyon-like pitch-black landmass as it bit the white light giant dragon.
In the next instant, Shi Tianhao was before Shi Tianyi. He lashed out with his fist.
This time, Shi Tianyi dodged. His soul trembled and the flow of his mana changed. Shi Tianhao could be sure that the person before him was the real Shi Tianyi and not an illusion.
However, if that was the real person, why was his white light giant dragon attack so weak?
Could it be that his bark was bigger than his bite? Or that he had not yet recovered from casting his Great Void Nine Heavenly Spells?
Or…could it be a ploy?
Shi Tianhao felt that something was off and he stopped himself. When Shi Tianyi saw that, he smiled and said, “Good reaction.”
As he said that, Shi Tianhao suddenly felt the Tao Tie Great Chaos Furnace behind vibrate vigorously.
There appeared to be limitless energy expanding which the Tao Tie powers in the Great Chaos Furnace could not devour.
While the Tao Tie’s devouring power was impressive, it still had its limits.
Right now, Shi Tianhao could feel that the Tao Tie was at the limit of its devouring power.
In the dark of the Great Chaos Furnace, bright, purple light began to shine. A rumbling ensued and it sounded like thunder. Rays after rays of purple light shone into the sky.
“The white dragon just now…” Shi Tianhao arched his eyebrows. He telepathically tried to sense it and realize that while the mana that formed the white light giant dragon had been devoured, something else was present inside.
The white light giant dragon was only a distraction. It concealed Shi Tianyi’s true killer move.
And that was a skull-like object. Its entire body was light gold and looked like crystal. Limitless amount of purple light shone from it as it bombarded Shi Tianhao’s Tao Tie Great Chaos Furnace. It appeared infinite. Based solely on the Tao Tie’s devour ability, it was unable to consume it. Instead, its power grew.
“It’s actually a Magic Treasure Embryo?” Shi Tianhao blinked.
Shi Tianyi said, “This is the material that I’m going to cultivate into a magic treasure for the day I reach the Immortal Soul stage. The Great Void Sect has secret ways to that allow us to cultivate even Magic Treasure Embryo, making them more powerful than normal Nascent Soul stage magic items without compromising on their magic treasure potential.”
Before he finished saying, the purple light from the golden skull blazed even more intensely. From its center, one could see an outline made of light. It was a giant bird that appeared restless and bored. It soared in a thunderstorm.
The shadow of the giant bird took form as the thunder became a lot more intense.
